Canton Woods draws 45 vehicles for show

— More than 45 gorgeous cars filled the grounds at Canton Woods Senior Center for the facility’s second annual car show held Monday Aug. 8.

“[The] show was a great success,” said Ruth Troy, director of Canton Woods Senior Center. “The support from local merchants and the community was tremendous.”


Rodger Richards holds the 2011 Canton Woods Senior Center’s fan’s favorite plaque for his 1957 Chevy BelAir, which he entered into the center’s second annual car show held Monday, Aug. 8.

The show awarded several prizes including the fan's favorite, a 1957 Chevy BelAir owned by Rodger and Betsy Richards of Auburn, the president's choice (chosen by Ed Barlow, president of Canton Woods Senior Activity Group), a 1951 Chevy 3100 pick up owned by Steve and Lynne Marble of Auburn, and the oldest vehicle entered in the show, which was a 1929 Ford two-door sedan named "II Kool" owned by Pat and Gail Lyons of Baldwinsville.

“Thanks to all who participated and supported the car show,” Troy said. “See you next summer.”

The event sponsor was Hayden Allstate Insurance and Evans Chevrolet provided music by DJ Seedz.
